    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Kmart in June 2015.

    Interview

    Human Resources will call you in after the interview is set in place. They'll basically go over your resume with you and ask about prior work experiences, if any are applicable. They'll see if you can fit in with their schedules or in there'll be any type of problem. Drug tests and background checks are done on your own time, only when you have been selected for the position.

    It was just a normal interveiw process, just normal questions and nothing out of the ordinary, it was the job that was the bad part. The interview was easy, questions that I was fully prepared for and answered with confidence and ease.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 days. I interviewed at Kmart (Monroe, NC) in June 2015.

    Interview

    The whole thing took less than half an hour, I went in and answered a couple questions and talked to two separate people. I think they were pretty desperate to hire people cause this was my first job and they hired me without hardly any hesitation. They called me and I went in the next day for my interview on a thursday, then later that same day they sent me two emails with my onboard info which I filled out, and they called me in for orientation the monday after that. Communication was a little weak but I think that was partly because I didn't know what to expect since it was my first interview.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at Kmart (Milford, CT) in June 2015.

    Interview

    The process took two days. I applied online Sunday night and they called me on Monday afternoon. I scheduled an interview for that Tuesday afternoon. When I went in I went to the customer service desk and told them I had an interview. The girl I was supposed to interview with did not want to do it at the moment cause she was on break--__--. So the other employees contacted the actual manager and after fifteen minutes of exploring the store, I interviewed with him. He was SUPER nice. He talked more about the company than he did about me so it was pretty laid back. When we started laughing and joking around I knew I was in. He hired me on the spot, I did my drug test and he said he wants to get me in by next week. Yay !
